iPod museum tours

A small Maine museum is taking advantage of the proliferation of iPods to reduce tour costs. According to Bowdoin College's Campus News the Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum has created a podcast of its latest exhibit on the Inughuit people of Northwest Greenland, allowing visitors to hear Arctic winds, Greenlandic dog teams, and people speaking, singing, and playing sealskin drums. Visitors can use their own iPods or borrow one from the reception desk, free of charge. The podcast is available on the museum's website or through the iTunes Music Store, with each selection accompanied by a photograph so that users can still see the exhibit even if they are unable to visit it.
